In the Steps of a Top Chef

Are you a fan of Top Chef ?  Are you inspired to do more cooking at home or to become a trained chef? Then take this 3 hr. (approx.) walking tour. (We'll also jump on the subway for a short ride.)

Visit some of the neighborhoods, shops, restaurants & landmarks that the chefs went to while in NY. Taste some great food, experience things not offered to the public & learn what it's like to be a chef.  Meet a pastry chef and ask questions.

Participate in an interactive challenge and shop like a chef (& enjoy a special discount.)  Learn how to use a variety of knives and have a snack at one of Tom Colicchio's eateries.

Enjoy a variety of  tastes:

  • Sandwiches at 'wichcraft
  • A Chinatown Treat
  • Artisan Cheese in Little Italy where Leah shopped

Many real-life locations are featured on the tour, including:

  • The location where Carla cooked squab & peas
  • Where the chefs shopped for their challenges
  • The cooking school where they shot during season 3
